What's key is getting there.  Is it really School Choice if the student can't there?  Listen in as Phillip shares some of the dynamics that complicate achieving true equity.  Phillip Burgoyne-Allen is a former policy analyst at Bellwether Education Partners.  During his time at Bellwether, he worked on education policy with a frequent emphasis on transportation efficiency and environmental impact.
